Since Friends wrapped up fifteen years ago, fans of the sitcom have been more than vocal about wanting Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and Joey to return to the screen one more time.
All cast members but Jen have had active Instagram accounts, that constantly tease us eager followers with hints of a reunion. But since she finally created her own Instagram account last month, people are now more concerned about Jen's social media activity than a Friends reunion.
Her every move has been heavily analyzed by the entire world, so it's no wonder that her ex-husband Justin Theroux reaching out to her on the social media app was noticed instantly.

We were first introduced to the Friends gang in 1994.
via: GettyRoss (David Schwimmer), Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Monica, (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), and Joey (Matt LeBlanc) burst onto our screens in September 1994. Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, the comedy follows the friends, who live in the same New York apartment block, as they navigate their lives.
The sitcom became an instant hit.
via: GettyThe show propelled each cast member into superstardom, with the show winning several Emmy's during its ten-season run. The success of the show can't be denied...even the theme song, "I'll Be There for You," during the iconic title sequence is impossible to not sing along to. Allegedly, the cast was also each on an eye-watering $1 million salary per episode in the later seasons of the show - a history-breaking figure.
Over the years, there have been a few low-key reunions and a lot of false hope...Apart from the occasional reunion on talk-shows, fans have had their fair share of disappointments when it comes to waiting for a Friends reunion. A fake trailer for a Friends movie trailer even went viral last year, giving superfans false hope that the sitcom was hitting the box office.
Just last year, Matt Leblanc said a Friends reunion would never go ahead.
via: GettyThe actor left fans heartbroken as he rejected calls for the show to return, saying the sitcom simply "wouldn't be the same" in an interview with the Mail Online. He added: "People want to know what happened to them. But it was about a finite period in a person’s life after college, before you settle down and start a family."
It's not just the cast that has shut down calls for the sitcom to return...
via: GettyThe show's creator Marta Kauffman, says she constantly gets "nagged" by fans to bring the sitcom back.
"Watch the old ones – there is no way we could win that. And there's no way it would be satisfying and it'll never happen. We'll never do it," she said.At this point, it was pretty clear that a Friends reunion was never going to happen.
But, as we were finally beginning to accept we wouldn't see the gang on our TV's again, Jennifer Aniston has just gone and totally changed the game...
via: GettySpeaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actress gave fans a fresh glimmer of hope...
Speaking to Ellen, the star said the cast are all on board for a reunion.Yes, you read that correctly... When asked the usual question about a potential reunion with her fellow co-stars, Aniston surprised fans, saying: "Why not? You know what, because, listen, I told you this.
"I would do it... The girls would do it. And the boys would do it, I'm sure. Listen. Anything could happen."
The actress seems very keen to get together with her former castmates...
via: GettyAniston joked that she could do a revival by herself if nobody else was up for it.
But there's one thing that Jen has never joined in with her fellow castmates...And that's an Instagram account.
All other castmates are pretty active on their social media accounts...
But the news everyone was waiting for was finally announced...Jennifer finally got an Instagram account last month! She created her account under the name @jenniferaniston on the 15th of October, and her first post is everything we could have dreamed of.
Jen wasted no time in giving us fans what we want...
Our prayers were finally answered!Jen even playfully commented on Matt Le Blanc's Instagram post of the gang recently: ‘You don’t have to # me anymore."
Jennifer is already the most popular member of the gang on Instagram...world record of gaining a million followers in just 6 hours.
Thankfully, the glitch was resolved within a few hours...And out of her 18.6 million followers, a lot of them are fellow A-listers.
Including ex-husband Justin Theroux.
via: Getty ImagesIt appears that the pair are still on relatively good terms since they announced the ending of their marriage in February 2018.
It turns out that Justin was one of the first people to follow Jen's new Instagram account...
via: Getty ImagesHe told ET's Rachel Smith that he was actually one of the first, saying, "She actually texted me. She said, 'You haven't followed me,' and I said, 'Of course I followed you!' and she's like, 'No you haven't!'" "I realized I was one of the people caught in the glitch... She literally broke Instagram."
Justin has been using his Instagram to promote the Lady and the Tramp...movie further.
But his most recent Instagram post reached out to Jen...Ventura County Animal Services to help other animals in need.
The charitable post included a mention of 2 fellow A-listers...Justin tagged Selena Gomez's account, saying, "Sorry Selena, you know the drill," and he also tagged ex-wife saying, "Yep, now that you're on here, you're gonna get a lot of this too!"
And guess what...Jennifer liked the post!
Okay, she didn't end up replying...
via: Getty ImagesBut it is nice to see that the exes are on good terms and they have remained friends... especially for poor Kuma's sake!
